Applicable Error Code

FATAL-4001: Could not open port 0.0.0.0:7901 for listening, error: Address already in use

Affected Versions

Affected Platforms

Platform Independent

 
Solution

 While running setup wizard we get the error

FATAL-4001: Could not open port 0.0.0.0:7901 for listening, error: Address already in use

There are two ways of resolving this issues.

  1. Running setup wizard again and changing the APPLY and MINE remote interface ports in Step4.
  2. Edit the onetime.DDC file and change the ports

 

 Option#1: Setup wizard

You can Run the setup wizard again and choose the replication you want to modify. In this example, MEEE is the name of my Replication which I would want to edit


(DDC_NAME) - Please enter a name for this replication: [] MEEE

Step 1 to Step 3 would be the same no changes required and when you move to Step 4, you can change the interface by typing yes in the option.

 Checking that these settings are valid...
Do you want to change any of the settings? [No] Yes
(MINE_REMOTE_INTERFACE) - For each process, the address and port is needed on which it can be reached for commands: [source:7901] source:7905
(MINE_DATABASE) - Enter database TNS alias for target database: [ttorcl_src]

 

Below is the Example


Step 4 - Process configuration
========================================
The fourth step is to configure the replication processes for each replication. Following processes are defined:
1: MINE on ttorcl_src
Host: source, SMTP: No, SNMP: No
2: APPLY on ttorcl_trg
Host: target, SMTP: No, SNMP: No
Enter number of process to modify it, or "done": [done] 1
Fully qualified name of the server for the process (usually co-located with the database, unless mine is offloaded using fetcher): [source]
Server type (Windows/Linux/Unix): [Linux]
Enable email notifications about problems? (Yes/No) [No]
Enable SNMP traps/notifications about problems? (Yes/No) [No]
Directory with DDC file and default where to create log files etc. (recommended: same as global setting, if possible)? [/u01/app/oracle/MEEE] Following settings were pre-filled with defaults or your reloaded settings:

Option#2: Editing onetime.ddc. You can also change the ports by editing the onetime.DDC file located inside config directory of your DDC replication folder.

Example:

RQ465 -- is the name of my replication
/u01/app/oracle/RQ465 - my replicate DDC directory


cd /u01/app/oracle/RQ465/config 

1) Take a backup of existing RQ465-onetime.ddc - there should be a onetime DDC file with the name of your replication.

2) Edit the file and change the appropriate port numbers in the below parameters.


SET APPLY.APPLY_LISTEN_INTERFACE 0.0.0.0:7902
SET APPLY.APPLY_REMOTE_INTERFACE target:7902
SET MINE.MINE_LISTEN_INTERFACE 0.0.0.0:7901
SET MINE.MINE_REMOTE_INTERFACE source:7901 

Change the default ports 7902 / 7901 to some other ports that are open.

3) Run all.sh script
